“THE 13th COMMANDMENT”
AT LIBERTY TONIGHT
Ethel Clayton’s latest picture, “The
Thirteenth Commandment,” will be
shown at the Liberty Theatre for
tonight only. The story was adapted
from Rupert Wighes' magazine serial
of the same name. Daphne Kip. the
central figure, is a girl in a Middle
Western city who has always been
given all she wanted by a father
who is hardly qualified financially to
f give it. She becomes engaged to a
young New Yorker, who la appar
ently very rich. On her trip to thf
metropolis to purchase her trous
seau. she discovers that Wimhorn,
#Uer fiance, is really a poor man,
but, like her father, is going into
I
debt to satisfy her unreasonable de
mand.
As if to confirm this impression,
she comes upon her newly marfled
brother and his extravagant wife.
Leila, in a row over money mat
ters. She determines no longer to
be a parasite, breaks her engage
ment and, after an unsuccessful ex
perience on the stage, starts a little
shop that makes her financially in
dependent.
The picture is said to develop a
strikingly dramatic plot as well as
furnish food for thought.

STAMBOUL SAID TO BE
WICKEDEST CITY IN WORLD
There is a remarkable fascination
about Stamboul. the old quarter of
Constantinople, which attracts all
who ever journeyed to the Golden
Horn. One wonders what it is that
so fascinates those of the west.
Maybe it is the crowd of disciples i
murmuring their blessings, or the
bare-legged Armenian porters stag
gering under great weights. The
soldiers on foot, the helmeted police
on horseback, the shambling eunuchs,
the proud Albanians, the Sisters oP
Charity, the Mohammedan mer
chants of the Great Bazaar, the
dancing dervishes—these and a thou
sand other strange sights make
Stamboul one of the most fascinat
ing spots on earth.
“The Virgin of Stamboul," at the
Liberty Sunday and Monday, pro
duced by Univaraal-Jewel, was writ
ten especially for Priscilla Dean by
H. H. Van Loan, and the author has
endeavored to paint an animated
picture- of the “wickedest” city in
the world.
In the role of Sari, the beggar
girl of Stamboul, Priscilla Dean is
said to have achieved her greatest
triumph. The part permits her to
exercise all those thousands of in
dividual manneristms which have
made her the pet of millions. The
Turkish city has been reproduced
with marvelous fidelity for the film,
and dozens of other scenes have
been visualized and form part of
this picturesque production.

8IstAnee to those w'..o oa^ fallen by
the Wayside. Senator Crawley said
it was placing too niuc^j power in
the hands of courts, especially com
missioners. Senator Collins believed
the measure was a progressive one
and said: “Lot us give some poor
devil another chance, and if this
measure would reform one man—
one single individual It would be
worth It, to have it upon the stat
utes.”
Senator Hess said ho was not in
favor of the measure without
amendment, and would like to make
several. The upshot of the matter
was that instead of being indefin
itely postponed, the bill goes on the
daily file. 9

SENIOR'S COMEDY
WELL PRESENTED
RY H.S. STUDENTS
Local Tespians Made Hit in
Annual Play of Juneau
High School.
It was ft regular miniature college
night at the Coliseum Theatre last
night, the big time being the pres
entation of tlie annual play bv the
Senior Class of the Juneau High
School. The Coliseum was packed
from the bald headed row to the
loges and the audience entered into
the spirit of the comedy night just
the same as the thespians behind
the footlights.
* The annual play was “The Man
on the P. ix," a comedy made famous
by Max Figman. The comedy is in
three acts and there are many clever
situations and scores of comedy Hits
throughout.
The participants in the comedy did
splendidly and to single out one in
dividual from the others, no matter
whether in a “fat" pnrtj or smaller
rale, would lie an injustice. An am
ateur play is given for the benefit
of the audience and always reflects:
hard work on the part of the per-!
formers who generally do justice to
the various parts - assigned them
therefore dramatic criticism, is In
bad form. j
The boys and girls taking the vari-j
oils characters last night showed1;
careful coaching by Miss Bertha
Park.
The following were the Seniors
in the cast of “The Man on the
Pox” and who displayed remarkablp
histrionic ability; Pen Rurford I
Jacob Britt. Donnajd Haley, Charles
Perelle, James Bussey. Lance Hen '
drickson. Ideal Hendrickson, Flor *
